What happen with those people? Animal testing has never really worked! A recent shows that about 90 percent of medications which has been approved for human use (after previously tested on animal) later proved to be ineffective or harmful to humans in clinical trials.
The stories that animal-tested drugs have killed, disabled or harmed millions of people and lead to costly delays are everywhere. For instance, among the most publicized are the delays of a polio vaccine by over three decades in the use of protease inhibitors for HIV treatment after numerous animal testings showed these interventions to be useless. I’m not as genius as those professors and medical experts but I think the use of animals as models to develop human medications and disease-prevention almost always fails. Do you know why? Simply because humans and animals have different physiologies — especially prawns!
Even Splitreason’s new tee shirt ($18.95 USD ) can tell you that prawns have right not to be tested. Not only because it has skeleton and couples of legs (which make it different from us) but also… Because prawns have feelings too, just like us! Let’s stop animal testing… Starting with prawn*!
